Yes, there are search pages to search for specific data.
The most search pages show a table list with all the available data for the specific page (games or users for example). For some search pages there are additional form elements above or below the table list containing filter
-elements. Most tables also have filters in the table-header below the column fieldnames.
Controlling elements for filters
- A filter can be an input box, a selection element, a radio button, a checkbox or a combined input element. Entering or choosing a value for a filter of a column and pressing ENTER or the "Search"-button will restrict the shown table data matching the chosen filter-values while reloading the data.
On most search pages you can also do the search by using the key-shortcut 'x' (Execute).
- If you enter an invalid value, the erroneous filter-element is marked with a red border and an error message is shown.
- The "Reset Search" resets the values in the search form to its default state. Almost all table lists also have a "Show Rows"-button to show less or more rows of data. The default number of rows can be set in your user profile ("Table Max Rows").
- Most of the filters are always visible. Only some of them, like the country-selection can be hidden to save displaying space when clicking on the 'x'-link () right beside a filter. A hidden filter can be shown by selecting the '+'-link in the corresponding column.
- Search terms for fulltext filters are going to be highlighted within some texts for messages, forum posts and contact notes.
There are different filters
specialized for the according column or search page. If the filter-element has an input-box, a hover text shows a short syntax description of the filter, for example:
Syntax[NUM]: 3, -14, 1-5, 9-Syntactical help for filters:
The text-part in square-brackets (here 'NUM
') can be looked up in the FAQ under the topic "What is the syntax of a NUM-filter?"
to get a more detailed description about the syntax for the particular filter.
